  • Fort of São Jorge De Oitavos Was raised in the context of Portuguese restoration of independence war to complement the defence of the coast from the Tagus River under the direction of Don Antonio Luis de Menezes, 1st Marquis of Marialva was notably under the small garrison, with the function of preventing landing on the coast between Guincho Beach and the beach of the Guide while Epigraphic inscription on the gate of arms specify start dates and completion respectively as 4 may 1642 and 1648 scholars understand that a more accurate timeline would be to start in 1641 and 1643 I've Crossed fires with the Forte de Nossa Senhora da Guia and the Forte de São Brás de Sanxete come see this Strong round of 16 is pretty much for a hiking and bring a lancho or make a snack or go eat at a restaurant are always well from Forte De São Jorge De Oitavos Road Cascais 2750-642 Guincho Portugal

  • Old fort located between Cascais and Guincho, very nice renovated with authentic guns, some rooms have English-language information other don't. Recently you have to pay to visit it.

  • It was really good apart from the miserable battleaxe who works there, telling our kids off for their rather loud battle re-enactments with the cannons. This might have been justified if anyone else was there.. at all.
  • Construção da fortificação militar, inserido no conjunto das muitas fortificações militares da defesa avançada da barra do Tejo, edificadas a partir de 1640. Excelente conservação.
  • Muito bem conservado, com um pequeno museu e excelente vista para o mar.
